La passion de Jeanne d'Arc

Carl Theodor Dreyer Frankrike, 1928

Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Passion of Joan of Arc

Monsterpiece. Man these Christians love their suffering. It's always nice to see a bunch of old men trying to decide the fate of a teenage girl with mental issues. Suffering has never been more beautiful. Most of the film is shot in close-up so you can really pay attention to the suffering. They even take her to a torture chamber.
